Yes, that makes sense.

globalgirl2

makes sense because usually we tell lies to protect ourselves from punishment, pain, or being looked down on, or to hide from something.

No… rather I believe fear is the child of falsehood.

Uncle Floyd

maybe.
maybe not.

yes and i think fear is used to promote falsehood by people also for their own gain.

Light and Truth

Both falsehood and fear vanishes when there is knowledge.

i wouldn’t say “invariably”. Falsehoods are created for other reasons too.

I got you babe.

No. That is only what someone ‘said.’ They were simply stating their opinion – their philosophical view. That doesn’t make it a National Fact. 🙂 His, or her, idea of falsehood is the ‘child’ of fear “to him or her only.”
Falsehood is merely falsehood, all by itself, fear has nothing to do with it in my opionion. Unless the individual is afraid of learning the Truth and wishes to cover it up with falsehood. 🙂 Truth shouldn’t be at all frightening but comforting…
If something is false, why should it scare or frighten me? Learn from it and move on.
People who are lead by the imaginations of others is what frightens me! (Not you personally). 🙂 Beware of “them.” 🙂

No. Falsehood is a child of sin. Falsehood can also come from an unharnessed imagination, from a desire to cause harm to others, and from other reasons. It is not always an act of self-preservation. Anytime one chooses not to tell the truth, it is sin.
